A rare set of amiibo cards will appear outside of Japan. Nintendo announced the Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards will be sold in North America in March 2021. The cards are compatible with both Animal Crossing: New Horizons and Animal Crossing: New Leaf. People will be able to get $5.99 six-packs at Target.
The Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards were announced back in 2017. They went along with the Welcome amiibo update for Animal Crossing: New Leaf. Six cards appeared in the collection. Here’s a list of the ones available and their themes.
- Chai, a Cinnamoroll-themed elephant
- Chelsea, a My Melody-themed sheep
- Etoile, a Little Twin Stars-themed sheep
- Marty, a Pompompurin-themed bear
- Rilla, a Hello Kitty-themed gorilla
- Toby, a Keroppi-themed rabbit
In Animal Crossing: New Leaf, people could use these characters to get special clothing or furniture items. (You could exchange MEOW Coupons for them.) In Animal Crossing: New Horizons, scanning the amiibo cards at the moment will give you Sanrio-themed posters. For example, the Chai card will give you a poster with K.K. Slider and Cinnamoroll. The Etoile one gives you one of the Nooklings dressed as the Little Twin Stars.
Animal Crossing: New Horizons is available for the Nintendo Switch. Its next update will arrive in March 2021. Animal Crossing: New Leaf is available for the Nintendo 3DS. The Animal Crossing Sanrio amiibo cards will appear outside Japan in March 2021.
